About the Black Tie Ball
Over 30 years ago, a group of friends started the Black Tie Ball as a way of celebrating friendship and life in our community. Eventually, it became so popular that the Friends of the Black Tie turned it into a fundraiser to support the many efforts of the Mimbres Region Arts Council. The tradition carries on, with elegant themes and partygoers dressing in their finest or most fabulous attire.
This Year's Inspiration
The edgy theme for the 2018 Black Tie was inspired by a holiday window display at a department store in New York City. Arctic Vogue brings to mind crystal palaces, Ice Queens, and white, frosty blue and silver shimmer.
